What can a tummy tuck do for my figure?
Abdominoplasty, better known as a tummy tuck, is a cosmetic surgery that can resolve many common aesthetic concerns. These include:
Say goodbye to stubborn belly fat
For a person who exercises and eats a healthy diet, that highly visible midsection bulge may remain and appears impossible to resolve. A tummy tuck surgery includes liposuction and tightening the underlying muscles structure to slim and smooth the abdominal area.
Stretch mark removal
Stretch marks cannot be resolved without surgery. Topical serums and laser or other treatments can make them less visible – yet they remain. However, the only way to get rid of stretch marks on the abdomen is to remove the affected skin. During the tummy tuck procedure, our surgeon removes excess sagging skin from the lower abdomen, the area that stretch marks from pregnancy or weight gain most often appear.
Tone your abdomen
Muscles in the abdominal area often stretch or separate (diastasis recti) with age. The saggy, bulging look can become worsened after pregnancy, weight gain, or due to aging. During his tummy tuck procedure in Kirkland, Dr. Tseng will tighten loose muscles, shaping and firming the abdomen.
Improve your confidence
The greatest benefit of any plastic surgery is the feeling of confidence you experience with a flat, firm, youthful tummy zone.
